Helping Out the Community

Every year MyMan’s work has a Global Car Day where volunteers from the company go out into the community and help cleanup an area in need.  The girls and I have almost always participated in this event when we lived in Houston and it’s always been a rewarding experience.  Volunteering here in Holland was no different.  In the past, the volunteers for the Dutch sites have mainly worked at schools.  This year, we were working in a common area for a senior living/assisted living facility.

Bushes, plants, flowers, gardens, walkpaths, etc were added to this area.  Everyone worked really hard to make this day very successful!

This bench around this tree was put in by the guys who volunteered

They had this staircase/bridge that had been built for a previous project and was no longer needed.  So it was donated to use as part of their exercise equipment.

The girls were happy to give a helping hand…and Littlest liked to think she was dictating where the flowers were going!

These cherry chairs were a nice touch for both asthetics and functionality.
